I've never setup a printer outside of a desktop environment. The machine is virtual, but can see everything in the local network. I verified the address for the printer, so I know its correct.

 

Here is the webmin configuration page:  http://i.imgur.com/9CE3HZz.png

 

When I click create I'm given:

Failed to save printer : lpadmin failed :

lpadmin: Unable to connect to server: Bad file descripto

As an update. I just said heck with it and installed the lubuntu desktop. Used the gui to instantly find, add, and share it in the network. However, while it is shared, is there anyway to make it so that a windows computer can pull its driver?

 

I just used the first option available since I honestly never do anything but print a single paper here and there. I never use the all in ones scanning functions or anything like that. I do have a "Printer Drivers" folder thats shared, but only for the reason that I can't get it to auto hand out the driver like I've seen some printers do.
